:( i wish it wasn't overseas.

If I can find some 1985 Seventeen magazines and a scanner, I'll do this. LOL

(PS: I forget who said in the other thread that they had a 1969 Seventeen back to school issue but if you're not emotionally attached, it would most likely fetch beaucoup bucks on ebay.)

Considering it cost probably 75 cents at the time that is "beaucoup bucks."

This is my "can I create this look at my fav clothing boutique, Ross, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls" thread. :) I believe in dressing my best for less.

Polyvore=crack. Except I can't figure out how to post the pictures here. All I can find is blog code instead of forum code.

The easiest way is to right-click on the picture, open it in a new tab, and then use that as the URL for the "insert picture"

I wish my photoshop skills were as strong as others' skills are! Here are my clothing choices... but I'm too lazy for exact shoe and jewelry picks. Anyway, even if I had it to do over on an unlimited budget, I'd probably still end up wearing the same jewelry every day... it'd just be more expensive this time around!

ROUND ONE: ICE WATER TEAS
Since round one is still two days at UGA and it's only a bajillion degrees outside, I'd need two dresses in case the heat made one dress unwearable the next day. Both are Lauren by Ralph Lauren.

Day One:

Day Two:
http://images.bloomingdales.com/is/i...0.5,0&fmt=jpeg

ROUND TWO: HOUSE TOURS
I'd want something fun and cute that would still stand out a little, like this Sketchpad Elyse Dress by Kate Spade.

http://ksp.imageg.net/graphics/produ...291967t215.jpg

ROUND THREE: PHILANTHROPY
I'd want something bright and fun, but a little dressier than round two. I'd either go for this red and black (Go Dawgs!) one by Michael Kors:

http://www.michaelkors.com/products/mn/MK-2KN8_mn.jpg

OR this cute little party dress from The Limited:

http://www.thelimited.com/items/ltd/...274943_803.jpg

ROUND FOUR: PREFS
I'd want to stay away from a solid black dress, since so many girls seem to show up in LBDs. I just love this dress from White House Black Market:

http://www.whitehouseblackmarket.com...011_normal.jpg

BID DAY:
I'd wear this cute Michael Kors dress (which you can totally get at Macy's for $69.99). Comfy and with pockets! Sure, it's not totally white, but who cares? Recruitment is over!

So I am now addicted to Polyvore. Thanks for introducing me. Here's my second, better take (and truly taking advantage of the if-you-had-no-budget premise).

http://inlinethumb61.webshots.com/17...425x425Q85.jpg
(On Bid Day you get a shirt from the sorority you run to...and obviously I'm working on the premise that I already knew where I was going.)

I haven't even gone through recruitment yet, but if I had unlimited funds, this is the dress I would want for prefs:

Ah, the first dress! Is it from Theory? I've been ogling a dress that looks just like that for a little while.

Round 1: Open House (very casual - sorority members wear jeans/khakis & a t-shirt)

Round Two: House Tours & Philanthropy (casual - sorority members wear skirts/tops or casual dresses)

http://i37.tinypic.com/9hv0gj.jpg

Round 3: Skit Night (sundress or night skirt & top - sororities wear nice sundresses) I might be stretching it with this one...it's a little bright...but I think it would work.

http://i34.tinypic.com/2pyox82.jpg

Round 4: Preference (cocktail attire - sororities wear nice dresses - usually black with a colored accent, but there is some variation, for ex. Pi Phi wears wine & blue colored dresses).

http://i37.tinypic.com/33m1r20.jpg

I love everything here & also all of goldsilverbronze's first posting- except the pale green shoes for Pref Night -- I'd have to substitute something much more classic (sorry, I think that I double posted).
